Nature conservation

Parks, reserves and protected areas

Other options

Aboriginal joint management of parks and reserves is not restricted to memoranda of understanding, indigenous land use agreements and lease-back agreements. Other options are available, including:

  • Aboriginal people participating in existing management committees and advisory committees or the NPWS creating new Aboriginal Advisory Committees
  • An informal arrangement where the NPWS and representatives of Aboriginal community agree on when and who the NPWS should consult on particular issues.
